Friday was arguably the greatest day in NCAA Tournament history. We saw a 15-seed upset Michigan State go down, 13-seed Hawaii upset Cal, 14-seed Stephen F. Austin taking it to West Virginia, Notre Dame mount a great comeback, Cincy being a split second too late to force overtime, and Northern Iowa making a magical March moment to upset 6-seeded Texas. Half court shot to win? Are you kidding me? What will today have in store?

There are a lot of exciting games on the slate today. Things kick off with a tough game between Wichita State and Miami. Don't let the seeds fool you, Wichita is actually a slight favorite. But the one I think we all want to see is Kentucky vs. Indiana. Two storied programs who are coming off monster wins in round one. This contest is going to have the feel of an Elite 8 or Final Four game, but we get the chance to watch it in Round 2.
